Re: Miss Ellie Scallions in N.S.
I have found some new information on the Scallion family. Much earlier than we are presently discussing. Documentation has surfaced that shows a John Scallion as a clerk in Ireland in 1784. Then information came from : Registry of Deeds, Dublin Abstracts of Wills, Volume II, 1746 to 1785 Author: P. Beryl Eustace - 700 BAYLY, SUSANNA, Ballytore, Co. Kildare, widow of John Bayly late of Gowran, Co. Kilkenny, Esq., deceased. 21 July 1784. Narrate 2 pp. 2 Oct. 1784.
Robert Bayly then the youngest son of the said John Bayly and of testatrix, exor. Her son Clayton Bayly, a settlement executed on his marriage. Reciting that said John Bayly was seized of lands in counties of Kildare and Dublin, and of lands of Donacomper, Old St. Wolstan's, New St. Wolstan's and other lands all situated in counties of Kildare and Dublin, and Parsonstown, New Bridge and part of St. Woolstanes and Cooldrina, also lands near the town of Carlow, Co. Hatherlogh, and the small island in the River Barrow. Cabragh, Figott, and Rathenrick, Co. Meath.

I cannot connect this to anything at the present time, but it does confirm that Scallions were in Ireland during the 1700's. Perhaps if we keep digging, we can connect these families. Thanks for the info.
